Description

Arches are rare in the Great Smokies, and you get to hike through this one! This gem is also along the way to Alum Cave Bluffs, so you can hit two gems in one. This arch is slate rock that has taken hundreds of years to form. You can easily maneuver through this trail with the steps and cables installed in it.

Half-Day Hike: Use the Alum Cave Trail to access.

Gem Type: Natural Arch
